The split "make it that much easier for him to get back with her and be her husband," a source tells Hollywood Life. "He wasn't too fond of that rapper anyway and thought he was a sucker- Khloe's rebound man!"
Though Kardashian, 30, and her hip-hip star ex, 29, once banned Odom from a club, the insider insists the 35-year-old never lost his confidence.
"Real love always wins in the end. He knew that wasn't going to last," the source explains to the site. "French was there so she could get her mind off Lamar. We all know that. He did his job, played the role he was supposed to play, and now he's gone. Just like that!"
